Well Fed And Angry Rattlesnake

Came a little too close for comfort to this rattlesnake yesterday.  He had recently eaten (the body is much larger on the right side about midway) and had his rattle up and shaking like crazy.  He wasn't happy to be disturbed but finally went down the slope and let us continue.

Altadenahiker: Mine too. The time from when you first hear the rattle until you spot the snake are the worst. It was a big day for wildlife spotting, we also saw a bear and a fox.
